Bottle label data: ENJOY BY : 20 JAN 2015 1019P

Dark copper body with a thin yet lasting head. Roasted grain, nutty aroma. Charred sugars, maple, roasted nuts, and, in the background, an almost smokey character. Medium body with a semi-dry feel.

A very flavorful, full-on malt character, rich in dark malt and woody, nutty flavors.

I'm not a big fan of the style because it tends to tilt toward malt and I'm a hop lover. This beer is definitely malt forward, but there is enough hop balance to make it interesting to me. I probably wouldn't seek it out again. This was part of a flight for me.
